As always – discovering and sourcing the highest quality, results-driven ingredients the organic world has to offer was the first step on the path to creating our new Echium and Amaranth Age Confidence Facial Oil.
This time round, the biggest challenge for our formulation team lay in choosing what to leave out!
There are so many great ingredients out there that it can be tempting to include hundreds – but for us, that means each is there at such low concentrations that they really do very little for the skin.
With this ten-oil blend we’ve been very selective – combining high quantities of the actives that have the most concentrated benefits and that each deliver something unique to the skin.
In the end, we’ve combined some firm favourite ingredients, trusted time and again for their unbeatable performance, with some incredibly exciting beauty breakthroughs.
Meet our ten star ingredients
The richest known plant source of Gamma Linolenic Acid and Stearidonic Acid – unique and powerful forms of Omegas 3 & 6. The anti-inflammatory properties of these acids help keep sensitive skin types calm and clear.

Has the ability to increase the skin’s metabolism for a brighter, revitalised complexion. It inhibits the enzyme that breaks down Collagen, also protects the skin’s strong and supple support system.
Contains a unique blend of Omegas 3 & 6, which strengthen and repair the skin’s essential moisture barrier.
Contains high concentrations of the richest Essential Fatty Acids around – which actively plump cells whilst simultaneously restoring hydration.
One of the only plant sources of unparalleled moisturising agent Squalene – which vastly increases skin suppleness and elasticity to soften and prevent fine lines and wrinkles.
Replenishes the skin’s essential level of Palmitoleic Acid – an enriching oil produced naturally by the skin that depletes with age.
Sea Buckthorn Oil
Rich in antioxidants, Pro-Vitamin A and a rare form of Omega 7 that nourishes the skin and aids cell regeneration.
Bursting with Oleic acid, Linoleic acid, Vitamin E and pro-Vitamin B5, it dramatically improves the skin’s elasticity.
